Fujifilm X-T3 review

Would we still buy a Fujifilm X-T3 now that the X-T4 is out? The X-T3 still has a lot going for it, especially at today's prices

Fujifilm X-T3 review

Digital Camera World Verdict

The X-T3 is so good, in so many areas, that you really have to scrape the barrel to find anything negative to say about it at all. Yes, a bigger buffer depth would have been good in continuous shooting mode and it’s a shame there’s no in-body stabilisation, but if you look at the price and what this camera can do, it outweighs all these tiny niggles. The newer X-T4 has IBIS, a vari-angle screen and a bigger battery, but the X-T3's basic stills and video specs are the same, so it's a good deal.

The Fujifilm X-T3 is no longer the flagship Fujifilm X-mount camera, as it's now been superseded by the Fujifilm X-T4, but the X-T3 represented such a major technological update that it's still at the cutting edge, even now.
